Clip ‘n Climb Ilkley has carefully been nestled into the heart of Ilkley, at the Station Plaza on Ilkley Railway Station. The design and layout have considered the heritage of this historic building and its original architecture.

With the design of the café overlooking the arena, we offer you the chance to watch your child’s climbing experience from up high, taking in the amazing atmosphere whilst enjoying a coffee and cake.  Or treat everyone to lunch or snack as a reward for the good climbing.

The Station Plaza enjoys one of the best links to public transport situated directly on the platform of Ilkley Station. Ilkley Station is a main commuter link to Leeds and Bradford and beyond, making a trip to Clip ‘n Climb Ilkley even easier to enjoy.

There is also the bus station just metres away opening links to Keighley, Skipton and up into the Dales National Parks.

There is also a large shared car parking on site with 2 ½ free parking. This gives you plenty of time to arrive, book in, climb and have a refreshing drink and snack while talking about your newfound limits and challenges that you have mastered.

The café situated up on the mezzanine boasts a range of flavoured teas, including Fairtrade English Breakfast tea,  Coffee, Hot Chocolate as well as an extensive range of soft drinks. With a range of cakes, snacks and hot/cold sandwiches to suit all, including Gluten Free options.  Snacks may be limited whilst capacity is reduced.

An individually prepared menu is also available with the booking of Birthday Parties, corporate events or lunchtime
